Could you please underline the question stem as well for the sentence correction ?

It would be much convenient. :)

B Lake Titicaca has the most volume of water of any lake in South America
D The Lake Titicaca has the most volume of water of any lake in South America

The only difference is the use of " the " in D
I am not sure why D is incorrect .

Because singular lake names are used without an article, whereas plural ones require an article. e.g Lake Michigan, Lake Baikal vs The Finger Lakes.

I'm not sure, but I believe GMAT doesn't test the use of articles. I have never seen any official question testing this rule.

The only difference between B and D is "The" at the beginning. Does the GMAT test usage of articles? Please enlighten :)

B and D is confusing but while answering, Just THE needs to be taken care of.
Also, too much THE in D makes it wordy and less concise.

Hi All,
This question is from GMAT club grammar book.

'The' is used where you have to give stress or you are using superlative degree.

Quote:
The Lake Titicaca has the most volume of the water of any lake in South America,


in this sentence first The is not required as we are not giving stress on Lake Titicaca
second The is required as this is attached to superlative word 'most' in this sentence.

hope this clarifies you.

As long as there is only one lake called Lake Titicaca in South America, I do not think it matters much whether you call it simply lake or the lake.

just leave it at that saying this topic has two possible correct choices and hence not likely a GMAT question
